I love milkshakes, I’m lactose intolerant, but once in a while, when I go to the toilet I don’t have a runny mess. They should’ve got this Lorenzo guy out of here years ago.
Well thanks for that description
Long live a dead continuity?
Sorry, it’s a real killer and… well. Yeah, least you got it.
I swear Lorenzo has never actually watched a movie before. He's like a really slow computer that only sees "audience engagement" as a spreadsheet with box office receipts.
I don't really think they did. The most important thing they needed to convey in advertising that movie, was that this time it would be different. I think they got that point across about as well as could be expected. If they'd advertised it like some action-packed explosion-loaded affair it would have done worse.
If it underperformed, I'd put that down to releasing too close to a despised installment in the franchise. Same thing happened to the Han Solo movie.
Not to mention overloading the audience with so much crap happening on screen that you're supposed to just accept it and not actually think about how dumb everything is. In the GI Joe interview he practically was complaining about how he couldn't get Michael Bay back.
Enh, I feel like they should have emphasized the distancing from the bayverse, since they went so far as to remove the 'Transformers' branding from the title itself, but of course Paramount was trying to have their cake and eat it too when it came to trying to promote Bumblebee to both people who didn't want the bayverse to end and people who did want a new beginning.
The film could still fit in the Bayverse even if it retcons a few details, which isn't new to cinema. I thought that it was obvious that whether it was a prequel or rebooted would have depended on the film's success.
I'd argue, doing it terribly is where people really get frustrated. There's been quite a bit of stuff that's been superficially closer to G1 than UT or the movies lately, sure. But it's been some of the lowest quality content they've put out.
I swear that's the same feeling I get when I hear Hasbro people speak, as well. I mean, we all know and understand that you're a toy company, but come on, mate, you've watched movies and stuff, you're a human being.
Let’s worry about them getting Joe right first.
LORENZO BAD AMIRITE?!?!?!?!!???!???!??
anyways I don't really give a shit about this guy and neither should you, he's a generic producer dude.
"I’ll say this: The first Transformers movie and the Bumblebee movie both got into that sense of wonder and that first connection between man and machine. So we’re hoping to replicate, in many ways, what we did in Transformers 1, which was tell a very emotion-driven story with big, wild experience. Bumblebee reminded us of our roots, in a sense."
I smiled reading this. Regardless of one's feelings on Lorenzo, this quote is something that is good and reassuring to read. This analysis is right on the money.
This guy seems like a classic blame-powered executive. I don’t mean the obvious way he’s picking on the marketing. I mean the way he’s looking at installments he thinks did relatively poorly, and he’s looking for what was different about them, so he can scapegoat those characteristics and move way too hard in the opposite direction. Happens with video game series all the time and it’s usually not the worst thing in the world, but if the series continues to undersell and get its budget cut, it can get sad to watch.
"Good" is an opinion not a fact.
I stand by what ive said on these Bay threads for years. The movies never sucked. The fandom sucks. They become the equivalent of the star wars fandom. A bunch of backseat directors that need pacifiers.
Yeah snobs. People who think their opinions are fact.
"Bad" is an opinion not a fact.. My opinion is Bumblebee was probably the most boring out of the 6 movies. Not enough actiin or explosions, and he killed Dropkick and Shatter in the corniest of ways. Somebody give Bee a damn gun.
So apparently how the T-800 is destroyed in the original Terminator is now corny since that's kind of the same thing as how Shatter dies - a robot trapped between a very thick immovable plane and something moving with enough force and pressure to utterly crush it to smithereens.
How is a 7th installment dead ? What happened to all the reboot fanatics ? They all melted when they got what they got.
Do you rate every movie you see on how good they are with how much explosions or actiin they have?
